Scientists have revealed that too much porn can make men stupid, not that this revelation is going to stop men from watching any. A study by German researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, whom we guessed are probably women, have found that men who watch porn aplenty generally have a smaller striatum. If you are already dense enough not to know what it is, the striatum is the part of the brain which processes ‘rewards and motivation’.

Compared to men who don’t watch porn and hence are non-existent, these porn-addicted men can also have less grey matter, making their brains generally smaller. However, the female (what did we tell you?) leader of the study Simone Kühn did confess that, like the century-old chicken and egg debate, it remains unknown whether X-rated material is making the brains smaller, or whether men with a smaller striatum tend to watch porn more often.

That aside, will we be considered stupid if we ask, “How much is too much?”
